5th Annual Summer School on Sustainable Climate Risk Management; Apply by May 30
Applications are now open for the 5th Annual SummerSchool on Sustainable Climate Risk Management, which will take place 30 July - 4 August 2017 at The Pennsylvania State University.
As a central part of its educational and research mission, The Network on Sustainable Climate Risk Management (SCRiM) hosts an annual summer school to foster opportunities for collaboration and to provide a solid foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and methods of the diverse fields participating in the network. A key focus of the workshop is developing a common vocabulary to help foster enhanced cross-disciplinary communication, enabling the possibility for future research and decision support collaborations. Participants will also gain hands-on experience with key methods and tools including robust decisionmaking, use of simple models, and analysis of relevant datasets.
The Summer School is open to postdocs, advanced graduate students, and early-career professionals in the decisionmaking and policy communities who are working on issues related to climate risk. In most cases, lodging, meals, registration, and travel costs will be fully covered for participants. International applicants are welcomed.
